In 2013, Bethany Bray was frustrated by lengthy phase I-IV clinical trial patient recruitment times and expensive patient recruitment strategies in her work in Neuroscience Research at Imperial College London and Oncology Research at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. Collaborating with Chris Klaus and Ben Cooper, the trio devised a web-based software platform that allows patients or healthy volunteers to be recruited for any clinical trial, in any disease area, in any location, across the globe.
Originally formed in 2014 as NeuroCruitment with a sole focus on neurological conditions, the benefits and effectiveness of the company’s unique web-based software platform quickly attracted CROs, sponsors and research sites addressing other therapeutic areas. The company changed its name in early 2015 to AutoCruitment and expanded its offering, referring patients for clinical trials in all therapeutic areas.
By streamlining the recruitment process, AutoCruitment helps accelerate the commercialization of safe, effective new treatments for devastating diseases and conditions. Clients are not the only ones to benefit from expediting the recruiting process; the platform empowers people who are suffering from chronic illness or diseases with the ability to locate and enroll in applicable clinical trials that offer access to potential medical advances.
AutoCruitment is headquartered at Technology Square in Atlanta, GA with offices in New York, NY and Toronto, ON.
